Celtic flavoured ceilidh band with driving sound

Róisín Bán is currently a trio consisting of Chris Dyson on fiddle, octave mandola, mandolin & vocals, Paddy Heffron on melodeon, vocals & sean nos dancing , Gordon Tyrrall on flute, guitar, vocals.

We play a range of traditional Irish tunes & songs as well as some tunes from Scotland, Brittany & a number of songs from the British Isles & beyond.

We also have a permanent soundman/PA person, Barry Evans. The band also work as a ceili band with Barry as caller. We also play for set dancing & are regular fixtures for the Whitby Folk Week set dance (Whitby Hoolie). Paddy & Chris have also played for the set dancing at Sidmouth Folk Week.

We also function as a Ceili band with the addition of the excellent guitarist Richard Moss from the band Drop the Floor. When Richard is with us the instrumental line up is the classic fiddle, flute, melodeon & guitar. Its a great driving sound.
